  • Gav & Dan are at a tank range using the latest and greatest in projectile tracking technology. Combined with the Phantom cameras, they get some absolutely surreal looking footage.

      you should have put an angled mirror in front of the barrel with the camera off to the side to get a shot of the round coming down the barrel

    Hey SLO Mo guys..Dudes!!! Why didn’t you do that last shot first with the tracking mirror?!!!! You know you gotta redo that right? As epic as that was like you did it just imagine what it would look like zoomed in with the other camera!! Come on you know I’m right. S Milstead

    2:14 wtf is this? You have the chance to live fire a working ww2 vehicle and you choose to stand outside? Seriously? You've wasted a once in a lifetime opportunity. I would have been in the turret enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of such a magnificant machine doing exactly what it was designed for. A banging headache is but a small price to pay.

    Actually the second gun that you shot which was the artillery Cannon wasn't the biggest gun in the world there is bigger like the Gustav Cannon and many other German guns and world war II were 10 times bigger than this

    They are thinking that this gun has an impressiv shockwave. Just look at a german pak 40 with its 75mm gun. You could also watch a Panther firing its 75mm but thats not possible i think.

      Nope, _A2._ though the video doesn't present the engine deck well, you get to see the engine deck in _Demolition Ranch's_ video at the same location, using the same tank from about two years ago. You can see its two-piece exhaust vent at the rear, and the six oil-caps on the engine deck.

    Looks like they need a different shell for the Sherman. That or a Sherman with a barrel that has a higher twist rate. Those shots do not look good for accuracy.

    Is that 1/5 charge?
    You read much worse in the war books.
    People believing their tank has been hit, only because the muzzle bore of another tank with muzzle breaker hit them.
    People killing soldiers with their tank's bore by shooting off-target.
    And more.
    They shouldn't swindle.
    Too little propellant, mass and velocity. That's why it got deflected.
    Still, good video!

      The Germans didn't have enough ammo but still can't defeat a single Sherman, but the Sherman still works though, gone into repairs and fight again with the old crew and one fresh new crew member.
